GRINS OF LOVE

GRINS OF LOVE What are these things That spread across my face? They're unbidden, these silly things That light up this weary old face. What causes these things, you ask? Ahh, I say with a little guile, 'Tis love, this thing in which I bask, For which I would walk a-mile upon mile. What are they that light up my eyes, These sudden, unbidden things? 'Tis love and friendship and sighs That bring forth these silly girlish grins! c ELR 2013
